Subject: A Vedic Grammar for Students
This book is intended to be a corresponding companion reference to the Authors: "A Vedic reader for Students". Therefore this review should be considered in that context. In addition, at least a intermediate level Classic/Epic Sanskrit is assumed.
Due to ocassional errors in the Reader, at times it can be frustrating finding the intended reference in this Grammar. Furthermore, the way this book is organized, headings and subheadings are not as clearly delineated as they could have been.
There is no Devanagari script, the intended companion Reader supplies that.
Quite technical and detailed. Evidently this is a condensed version of the Authors: "Vedic Grammar".
Appendix supplies information regarding Metre and Accent etc. Metre provides a rythmn and structure that helps the memory retain this Oral Tradition. As does accent, which consisted originally of three pitches (tones) forming the basis of what would become Indian Music. The treatment of accent in this Grammar is difficult to follow. Internet search of the subject may be better.
This book is suitable for reference; however, it should be kept in mind that it's primary purpose was to complement: " A Vedic reader for Students".
